Finally, Emirates Resumes Regular Flights to Nigeria
Following the reopening of its international airspace, Emirates will resume regular passenger services to Nigeria with flights to Lagos (from 7 September) and Abuja (from 9 September).
Flights to Lagos will operate four times a week on Monday, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, while flights to Abuja will operate daily. Both flights will be operated by a Boeing 777 aircraft.
The resumption of flights to both Nigerian cities will take Emirates’ post COVID-19 African network to 13 destinations.
Passengers travelling from both cities in Nigeria to the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific can enjoy safe and convenient connections via Dubai.
Passengers can also stop over or travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors.
COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving to Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from.
It will be recalled that Emirates and other international airlines suspended flights to Nigeria in March, 2020 following the closure of international airspace due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
